DDT4 Bracketing Update & Non-Tournament Participants!
By Silverback, Pro Wrestling Guerrilla Staff Writer
Quarantine Zone 7c, CA - When a business, large or small, operates during the winter months, there tends to be a high rate of employee personal days. Sometimes those days are used for vacation, but often times they are purely "sick days." In the case of Pro Wrestling Guerrilla (http://www.prowrestlingguerrilla.com), those "sick days" were actually "sick weeks," as the Pro Wrestling Guerrilla offices were rife with rhinovirus, streptococcus, rubella, typhoid, bubonic plague, the trots, and sinusitis. This lead to the Center for Disease Control declaring the Pro Wrestling Guerrilla offices a "hot zone," and forcing a mandatory 192-hour quarantine for every staff member, along with one very unlucky UPS driver. What does this have to do with anything, you might be asking? Nothing. Now shut up, here's your DDT4 update:
From their near-death beds, the Pro Wrestling Guerrilla Board of Directors have announced that the DDT4 First Round matches, along with the tournament brackets, will remain secret. This means that the fans, as well as tournament competitors, will not know which teams will be squaring off until they are actually in the ring with each other. The Board of Directors feels this will allow for the best overall tag teams to advance in, and ultimately win, the DDT4 tournament. While this blind bracketing system may seem to put the "nerdlier" teams (teams that heavily favor research and preparation) at a disadvantage, those teams will just have to prepare seven distinct First Round game plans instead of just one. But really, nerds love planning, so it's a win-win.
Along with the blind bracketing, "Hollywood Submission Machine" Joey Ryan, The Fightin' Taylor Boys (Brian Cage-Taylor & Ryan Taylor), "Pretty" Peter Avalon, and Los Luchas (Phoenix Star & Zokre) will all be in non-tournament action at DDT4.
DDT4 takes place on Friday, March 4, 2011 at 8:00PM at American Legion Post #308 in Reseda, CA, and will feature eight teams vying for a shot at El Generico and Paul London,
